The project has received funding from the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (Contract No. 11).

To ensure the security of the European Union on its shores and overseas, Member States need guarantee their future fleet will be outfitted with the latest and best available efficient new technologies. For the EU to remain at the technological frontier, cooperation with the decisive support of the European Commission (EC) is essential. Uniting 12 partners and 6 Ministries of Defence (MoDs) from 8 countries (including main EU naval yards), SEA Defence will lay a cornerstone for further naval cooperation under the European Defence Fund.

The consortium will engage with Member States and the naval supply chain, in order to assess the impact of breakthrough technologies on capabilities for future operational threats and requirements. SEA Defence will map the state of the art of most promising technologies for the critical ship performances structured into work packages and assess the impact of ship integration on capabilities, budget and interfaces. Finally, SEA Defence will provide recommendations for innovations to be considered on the next generation naval platforms.
